A truly great looking boot, but the sizing is very odd -- long and very narrow. The black only comes in "D" width, which really feels about like a "B" (narrow). The Amber comes in a "EE", which is probably about like a "D."

Just became my new favorite casual wear. I love this boot. Thought it might not be comfortable without an insole and all but that's not the case. I wear a 12 in most sneakers but had to go down to an 11 for this boot. So like most reviews I would consider going to a store To try one on first.

Quick break-in. Excellent comfort. Great looking boots. They were slightly uncomfortable for the first, one hour walk. After that, pretty much perfection. Perhaps I just have the right shaped foot. Made in the USA!

I bought these to replace a pair of 20+ year-old Red Wings that have been resoled and are still truckin' but looking a little haggard. I read a lot of the reviews and yes, they seem to be about a half size too long, but I compared them to the old boots and the reason they seem long is that the end of the toe box slants out (towards the front), not straight down like the old boots. My big toe fits right where it needs to be, so I wouldn't want a half size smaller and I've gotten used to the "longer" boot. I have been wearing them every day to work (teacher) for a month to break them in and I just got back from the first camping trip in the new ones, no blisters, no problems. I go camping once a month with the Boy Scouts and we usually have a long hike on the schedule, so good boots are a must. It's a lot of money for boots, but I have learned that you can't cheap out on shoes; I have another "vintage" pair of Red Wing work boots and am completely satisfied with both. I ordered on-line because the nearest Red Wing dealer is an hour's drive away and they didn't carry this style anyway, so I would have had to order them and then drive back to town to pick them up. Since I already had a pair, I ordered the same size. Zappos' price was cheaper and they offer free delivery and they are fast. However, I would recommend you go try them on, if practical, especially if you are unsure of the fit. All-in-all, a great pair of American-made boots, no hassle ordering, and free delivery. This is a great country.

These are the real deal, folks! I first tried the Chippewa Tan Bomber, and it bombed alright-- the leg was so narrow I couldn't even begin to put it on! Likewise the Frye 12R, which didn't look nearly as nice as the pictures. Enter the Red Wing Heritage: A vastly better fit, and what appears to be higher quality overall. I haven't field tested them on the motorcycle yet, but I am sure they will be perfect. Minimal break-in, and no surprises in the size and fit department. And was that a union logo on the "made in USA" label? I haven't seen one of those since high school! Save yourself time & hassle, and invest the extra money: Red Rocks.

Believe the hype! I've only had these on for a day, and they've become my favorite pair of shoes. Sturdy and stylish construction, the quality leather is already conforming to my feet wonderfully. I'd advise ordering a half size down (I got 9.5, my regular size is 10). The only downside is the flat sole (as others have mentioned), although that isn't a concern for me as there's no snow or ice where I live. I'll be wearing these for a long time to come.

Upon opening the box you could see the quality built into these boots. I had been reluctant to spend what these boots cost but after receiving them that reluctance is gone. I originally ordered size 10, a half size larger that my normal 9.5, based on other reviewers recommendations. They were too large and Zappos gladly exchanged them and of course, paid the shipping both ways! The 9.5's were snug but I have been wearing these boots for longer and longer periods at a time and can honestly say that after 3 weeks they have broken in and feel like part of my foot. The elastic goring on the sides is quite stout and I still must utilize the pull loop on the rear to get my door in but once there...wow. The stitching on the sole and the stacked leather look great and will surely last quite some time as the stitching is thick and tight. Excellent soles that work well on pavement, concrete and in the woods. I've had many compliments on these boots and when people ask who makes them, Red Wing usually catches them by surprise. I would recommend these boots to anyone looking for a rugged, yet stylish boot that works well in the field, on the job or just kicking about casually.

I have five pairs of Red Wings in various styles. I rank Red Wings at the top of list for quality, comfort, and durability. Reading all of the rave reviews left me with a need to comment about these boots and the other Red Wings. It's about the sizing of the boots. These are not like shoes in terms of fit. They feel large in the correct size, but that is because they allow for wearing boot socks and not the thin cotton socks worn with shoes. A nice thick boot sock fills out the boot just right. Tighten the laces to adjust the fit for the different thickness of the socks and the fit becomes perfect. If I went down in size there wouldn't be room for the thickness of boot socks. I buy from Zappos and from the Red Wing store near my house. Talking with the store owner has helped me to get the right size in my Red Wings. It's the size I normally wear and yes they fit roomy, but that is good and not bad. I can wear boot socks, but not my shoe socks. Boots fit differently than shoes so as I have purchased my pairs of Red Wings I have also purchased boot socks so I have the right fit and feel in my Red Wings.

I bought these boots in the hopes that I would make it through this New York City Winter comfortably, in style, and without falling on my butt. As anyone who has lived in NYC can tell you, our crosswalks are the greatest test of your footwear: they accumulate huge lakes of runoff snow/rain/sludgewater, and the grade from sidewalk to street is very slippery. Now that we're past the worst of it, I'm happy to report that these have indeed served their purpose. In terms of feedback, I think there are really only two other things you need to be aware of. 1. While they do feel a half size larger, that is really only in the foot part of the boot. Had I bought them a half size smaller I'm not sure that I would have been able to get my foot past the ankle part without unlacing 3/4 of the laces. 2. The white sole is darn near impossible to keep clean. For a while I was wiping it down every day or two and I've finally given up. If anything, the browing/spotting/marring that happens on the edges of the soles just gives them character. Overall, I'm a happy camper.

I love these. Bought then in brown, decided I wanted black, too. The black leather is more polished, for lack of a better term. These can shine up, whereas the brown is a bit rougher. Redwings tend to need some break-in, and these are no exception. However, they start out stiff, but not uncomfortable. A bit less compliant than the brown. I mentioned they are a bit narrow, but not overly so. My foot is a bit narrow in the heel, and perhaps a little wide at the ball of the foot-these, like mine in brown, will break in to fit perfectly. I love the style-the elastic is quite firm, but works well to keep the boot in place. No regrets!

Absolutely love this boot. I have been wearing them five days a week for about a month, and they are starting to break in nicely. Great with jeans for a casual look. As for sizing, I found them to be one half size smaller than my Nike's, but true to size when compared with Converse high tops.

This is my second pair of Red Wings. As a more rigid design, these did take a few days of wear to break in but since then they've been excellent. High quality, long lasting design and materials. I expect to enjoy these for years.

Handsome, rugged, well-made boots. A bit stiff at first, but they'll break in. I found them to fit long and narrow, so I went down one size and up one width (from a 14 in most shoes to a 13 wide).

I read so many reviews on these shoes. I work on my feet all day, at least 10 hours. From walking like a crazy person back and forth on hard floors to standing and walking for the entire work day. I am the only woman I know to have written a review. So here goes, I love these boots. They definitely run the size bigger so get a size smaller like everyone is saying. I wear a guys 7 in Vans and a women's 8 1/2 in running shoes and most others. Redwings special ordered the Iron Rangers for me in a 6 and a 6 1/2. It is one of the few boots they carry that they can get in smaller sizes. I ended up with the 6. I have always worn a Superfeet insole. I swear by them and have been wearing them in my work and everyday shoes for at least 14 years. I don't have them in my Iron Rangers and I haven't missed them. The boots are stiff, but, in a way that says quality and it will be worth the wait when they turn buttery soft. It took 5 days for them to feel less stiff. I found the worst part was the bend at the toe. It would pinch me and took awhile for me not to be as affected. Last night I figured i would push on the pinch point from the inside, I didn't think it would do much but, it did. It wasn't an issue at all today. I have also been taking walks in these boots and have had no issue. I wear heavier socks. I will change the sole to something with more "bite" when these have had some wear on them. The hooks at the top of the boots are a way better than the eyelets that are on other boots. I am so glad I don't have to "lace" them every-time. It is fashionable for women to wear capped toe derby boots right now. These are real time work shoes with the flexibility of being worn out on the town. From someone who had no business spending 300 dollars on anything right now, they are worth every penny. Go to a Red Wings store and try some on. You will see why there are hundreds of positive reviews. Hundreds and one!

These boots are awesome. Super good quality and they wear in like a good baseball glove. Takes a bit to soften up, but once they do you are golden. They look nicer after some wrinkles and scuffs accumulate. Negatives: These are too long and narrow for my feet. I wish they offered them in wide. I usually buy 10 - 10.5 tennis shoes. For these I bought size 9, but I think my perfect fit would actually be 8.5 Wide. Absurdly sized they are, but I guess that's how Red Wing rolls. I'll definitely buy another pair of Red Wings because they are way classier and better quality than any other shoe I've owned. You can spot the quality from across the room. I wear these every day and after about 10 days of wearing they are as comfortable as can be.

These are really great boots. Very good quality, and USA-made to boot!(pun...) I hit them with some Lexol to ease the break-in, as Red Wings are notoriously stiff out of the box. Also a warm application of sno-seal to waterproof. I have always found these to be comfortable, even after a long day on my feet. I highly recommend these. Of note, they do run .5 - 1.0 size larger than normal, so size down.

Great boot. I usually wear a 10.5 to 11 and I ordered a 10 wide in these boots. The fit is great and they are extremely comfortable right out of the box. I cant wait to get them broken in.

I finally caved and decided to purchase these because they are (in my opinion) the best looking casual boots out there. The black cherry color is versatile and looks great with everything. Unfortunately, that is where my enjoyment with these boots end. I have had this pair for a few months now and I have not enjoyed any of the break in that people have written about. Living in a city, I tend to walk a lot, apparently more than other people who have bought these boots. These boots are punishingly uncomfortable to walk any distance in and I have yet to find an insole that is thin enough to fit in the boots, yet give any degree of comfort. I guess, if you have any degree of arch in your foot, avoid this style, or order larger so you can fit a thick support insole in them. Disappointing at this price point. Lastly, the sole have very poor grip, especially in cold/wet weather.

First and foremost, size down! As other reviews said, these run large. I bought a full size smaller, and they are breaking in to be a perfect fit. They are a good looking and sturdy boot. The out-sole is well made and slip resistant. By slip resistant, I mean to oil, grease, etc. The flat sole is not good in snowy or icy conditions! I have been wearing mine consistently for the last month, and they are really beginning to break in. Until they do, expect it to be stiff and, if you wear them all day early on, expect to have sore feet. I would highly recommend these to anyone who wants a sturdy good looking boot that should last a very long time.

This boot, especially in the red cherry, is a very classy looking boot. Like most boots at first there is a break in period that can be somewhat painful. After they are broken in (took me about 2 weeks), they were extremely comfortable. It basically molds to your foot, so the shoe feels like it was made for your foot. The sizes do run a little large, but the width is normal. I am usually a 14E in regular shoes and the size 13 I ordered were a little narrow (unfortunately they dont come in a 13E), but had plenty of toe room. Once I broke them in the boots being a little too narrow was not noticeable really. This boot is the perfect example of "you get what you pay for". You will not be disappointed, and if you take care of them they will hold up really well. Mine still look brand new even though I wear them in the salt and snow all the time. Using sno-seal on them is a good idea.
